  1. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    I found a long standing leak in my 2.8 ltr. The leak is at the seal at the crankshaft seal. Seems bizarre that antifreeze leaks out of crankshaft. Anyone done it themselves?

    Evening all. Did my cambelt and pump a number of weeks ago, after driving down to southern Spain the coolant warning light came on, thought there may have been some air in the system and was just settling down. Drove around for a few weeks and it was fine, driving back up the warning came up...

    Sorry, if this question was answered before, but I did do a search for this and haven't been able to find what I'm looking for.. The coolant is low in my 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T convertible, and no one seems to know what kind of coolant it takes. The coolant that is currently in the car is pink, but...

    Hi A warning message has popped up on my TTiD telling me to top up my coolant. I ordered some online but want to check they have sent the right stuff. The manual just says top it up then a series of warnings to use the right stuff without saying what that is! The car is 2010 Convertible 9-3...

    Hi again. Following a chat with the guys at work today about coolant concentration/dilution it set me thinking. So hoping for someone to advise or confirm that the genuine Saab/GM coolant , the orange long life stuff, is pre-mixed. Just got my Haynes manual out and it says that all coolant...

    Hi, I want to change the coolant on my 2004 9-3 Aero. I have an unopen bottle of Halfords "Advanced Antifreeze and Coolant" originally bought for another car. The spec says it is General Motors (GM1899M & Opel GM QL130100) but no mention of SAAB. Does anybody know if this is OK to use in my...

    From what i've read Saab switched from blue to red antifreeze in 2001. Typically mine is a 2001 model and cannot tell what colour it is, any idea's which I should put in as my gut feeling is red due to not much changing in the cars cooling system in 2001 so cant see what harm it would do if it...

    Have done a search on this and couldn't find a definitive answer..... As the chilly season approaches, I want to top up the antifreeze in my 9-5 Aero (Jan 2000 registered). I know blue and green antifreeze will mix together but not with red antifreeze and that blue/green uses...

    My '95 9000 2.3 CSE is loosing a TINY bit of coolant, and there is a slight anti freeze smell coming through the vents when the heater is on. I assume i have a leaky heater matrix... Is it better to buy a new matrix, or is the leak most probably between the hose connectors and the "main...

    Hi all My coolant expansion tank seems to have pretty dark looking fluid in there. Not sure if it has mixed blue and orange antifreeze or something more sinister. No visible signs of oil (no surface rainbow effect or emulsion) just dark liquid. I wanted to flush the coolant sytem a few times...

    I'm thinking of changing my antifreeze in the next few weeks to prepare for winter. I presume,like oil, you get what you pay for. Can anyone recommend a good quality anti-freeze ? Thanks.

    Just had £60 of the new Saab organic acid antifreeze poured down the drain by the local independant I use. They use a hydrometer type thing to test it for strength but this doesn't work with the new long life coolants. Not happy Also asked them to get the handbrake pulling evenly after I...
